What an incredible, inspiring, exhausting day.

Tonight I am in the quiet space of my thoughts, feeling a whole lot of love, gratitude and deep appreciation.

: : For country dreams and for putting in our offer on the land that will someday be our farm. Our farm! We'll know more in a few days but we're beyond hopeful.

: : For being healthy and whole and holding my family close tonight. I will never take this for granted.

: : For a community that shows up in force to help each other, be it cooking a meal, stoking the fire, or nursing someone else's baby. An afternoon of phone calls and emails for a mama and baby in need and I am amazed at the souls that surround me. This is community. Thank you Viroqua mamas for being amazing beyond words and sharing so much of yourselves.

: : For the sweet vignettes (messes?) that my children leave around the house, reminding me always that my house may not be tidy but it's full of creativity, magic, and love.

: : and For the simple pleasure of this glass of wine. Which I daresay I earned today. The dishes can wait until tomorrow.

Goodnight friends. Take care of each other. We're the best thing we've got.

    I’m grateful for YOU organizing and reaching out to help a mama and baby in need. Others could have shaken their heads in pity and done nothing, but you stepped up and HELPED. Thank you.

    A nice post to read right before bed. I can only imagine what you’ve been working on all day, but I agree with Casey wholeheartedly. Lots of people feel sorry and do nothing more. Action is what it’s all about.
